questions. what are your thoughts on obamacare? [laughter] too many questions. i had to ask you three. >> i may need a couple hours. it is unraveling on its own effects. i was telling jonathan that i think it is not that government is inherently stupid, although that is a debatable point. [laughter] it is that they do not get the right incentives. the business would be run this way because you would be run out of business immediately. we have put into law perverse incentives. people who had cheap insurance no longer can buy that. it is what they could afford and that is the only way they had it. i was one of them. i used to have family coverage for five people, for $5,000. a $5,000 deductible. in obamacare, you can have a higher detectable and still pay $20,000 because there is a mandate built into it. the problem is the insurance company is never going to offer those policies again because they are told within a year, if you delay it for year, then in a year everyone will be forced to buy the new policies, which are more expensive. let's say you sell bread and you sell for a dollar a loaf,

in terms of growing government is causing all this anguish. this is coupled with obamacare, which is a total nightmare. i premium has gone up. this is ridiculous. what is usually created is the new underclass, the educated poor. the man does not care about free enterprise. wants government in charge of everything. it is a different philosophy than a republican would have. that if romney were elected, we would be coming out of this by now. with all this government regulation and the government goes -- the government knows best and comes first, as sky has never worked hard. arrogant,most polarizing, racist president we have ever had. the only people making excuses for him are the morally weak and politically correct liberal white apologists and the plaque -- and the black racists in the name of political correctness. everyone else is realistic enough to see the frog has dissipated and this guy is a total fraud. he will go down as one of the worst presidents this country has ever had. he does not care about the pain the americans are going through. >> joe from new york, good morning.

fire many calls for her to resign as a result of the botched rollout of obamacare. i think you have to look at what was the message she was getting from the white house as this website was being played out. was she empowered to do that. tom daschle was going to be the secretary of health and human services. glen reports in the piece, he was a can any washington operator. a former majority leader of the senate. when he was going to take the job he specifically negotiated for an officer in the west wing of the white house and status as a senior adviser to the president in addition to that cabinet portfolio. his nomination was derailed because of an un-related tax problem. but i think there was always a sense among the political operative he had the kind of political juice that she never did. of course, in a crisis so needed. >> host: john harris. the president should in order have americans trust health care and thrust the government again. the president should send that message and fire someone. >> >> guest:

at other rollout of obamacare, you understand that our underinvestment in technology in many cases cripples us. as we move toward common core. i was not one of the founders of the cob accept. but i will tell you this. i embrace it more more importantly my embraces of it. 72 fortunate of teachers embrace it. really only about 12% reject it. the teachers that studied it and thought about it and doing the preparatory work over the last intervening year since 2010 are getting it. and do believe that concentrating on fewer thing but going deeper concentrating on critical thinking is the right way go. i have to say additionally on this you have a legislative battle. you have a new legislative package. you have a new common core. you have a new evaluation system. indian people think they are drinking out of a fire host in connecticut. it's not easy. i think that has to be made clear. once we get through this. we're going to have a clear road of higher achievement in our schools. we'll get away from what i said earlier. the concept we simply have an obligation to distribute opportunity. and hold ou
